10.2 x 15.2 cm (4" x 6")
This painting was done in April of this year, and first posted on April 13th as Ice, Red River. I didn't like the original painting very much. Recently, while I was trying to decide if I should throw it out, it occurred to me that the painting might be improved by cutting out the foreground and slightly repainting the river to make the ice a little more visible.You can see the result.
The original painting is posted below. The composition of the original is fine, but somehow, overall, the painting doesn't work very well. (It is probably because of the lack of definition of the ice in the river and the ugly foreground - an ugly foreground will do it everytime.)
